For this month's challenge, we are back to the usual challenge trend of looking toward the latest Three Way blog post for our inspiration. If you haven't read this month's Three Way | Deconstruction Junction, please go check it out now. It's chock full of goodness for all types of scrappers:
messy and artsy
clean & simple OR
even a little of both!!!
So, for this challenge you MUST use one of the 3 example ideas on your pages in a bold way! Please let us know in the comments below, along with your link to your page, which of the Three Way | Deconstruction Junction ideas you used on your page.
To recap the Deconstruction ideas:
- Deconstruct a strong geometric shape & reassemble it on your page in a NEW way (e.g. chevrons, the rays of a starburst, etc)
- Create a page using a background paper that has been deconstructed & in some way made new.
- Take elements from a kit & break up the pieces into smaller components to use in different ways.
- and because we love you ... if you want you can Deconstruct your photo in some way!
Check out these jaw dropping pages by the Pink Ladies:
First up is this gorgeous page by Diane. She chose #2 and deconstructed a paper and made it a stunning focal point on her soft sweet page! The soft colors and textures of her papers, paired with the innocent image of her sleeping grandchild ... wow! Love!
Next up is this stunning page by Nancy. She chose #4, deconstruct a photo and truly made a stand out page. If this beauty does not get you in the mood for autumn and all things pumpkin, I don't know what will. Love how she cut up her photo into pieces, separated them with space, and then masked the photo underneath! Glorious!
Eszter also chose technique #2, deconstruct a paper and created this amazing art journal style page. There is so much depth and texture here! I love the wonky cut-out circles and the amazing shadow work and the layers of paint, splatters and texture are just amazing. I also love her visual triangle with those three orange circles with the word art! So beautiful!
Shivani never ceases to amaze with her creativity! She manages to use all three techniques on her page by cutting up a paper, adding big bold geometric shapes and deconstructing elements to make them new! How gorgeous and original is the shape she created? Pretty awesome right?
But that's not all. Shivani often spoils us with her skills and beautiful pages. She created another example to share with everyone using technique #4, deconstructing a photo. Everytime I look at this page, I am just wow'd. I'm not exactly sure how she did it but the combination of masked photo areas and mosaic tiles are simply stunning!
I hope the ladies have left you with some new ideas for this challenge! Now it's your turn! Can't wait to see your rocking DECONSTRUCTION skills!
Off course there's always a little something for free under the FB Free Gift Tab at the and to be found HERE on the blog. :)
Wishing you tons of fun and Happy Scrappin'!
